To accomplish great things, we must dream as well as act.
Anatole France (1844 - 1924)
Creativity is the residue of wasted time.
You can't fly when something is holding you down.
(I'm not sure who said this first)

Last week you swore her off,
And acted as if I was your friend.
Then today... she was by your side,
And you ignored me as you walked on by.
The seat next to you belongs to her once more,
And we don't talk... you don't care anymore.
I'm tired of being nothing,
When i've been nothing but nice.
Last week she was pampered... a snob,
Who got everything she wanted.
Today she's a... deprived child,
Who you can't stop talking about.
I understand that she matters to you,
But can't you see?
Don't I matter, too?

This is based on something that really happened between me and someone I thought was my friend.

The style reminds me of Hemingway, which is awesome. This is very true to life and you did a good job portraying it.

To tell one's name; the livelong June-- To an admiring bog"

Wow, I couldn't stop rereading this. It's so sad and true... I know how it feels to be stepped on by your friends, and it's one of the worst things in the world. I rated this 5-star without a second thought. Hope you keep writing :)
